It’s YOUR Time to Speak Up!

It’s YOUR Time to Speak Up!

Miriam G. Zacharias, MS, NTC, BCHN, President of the NANP

Public speaking is the fastest way to grow your knowledge, your influence, and your base of followers. Yet many people dread the idea of speaking in front of an audience. Jerry Seinfeld, in fact, once quipped:

“According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Death is number two. This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”

How commitment (and a little rage) can change your fortunes

Not long ago, the following statement was posted on a website called Science-Based Medicine:

Ready to Share Your Passion?

A Note from Our Executive Director Nicole Hodson

As someone who loves to cook
, I was thrilled when my friend and colleague, Dr. Tammera Karr asked me to contribute a few recipes to her new cookbook. I’ve dreamed of writing my own someday, with a focus on the nourishing, full flavored, and colorful Persian foods of my childhood. So of course, when Tam asked, I was more than happy to play… and even a bit flattered! 

TALK ABOUT A DO-ER! 

In awe, I watched each day as the emails came rushing in about new contributors, recipes, and narratives from Tam’s extensive NANP network. In just a few short weeks her cookery book, a companion to the original work, Our Journey with Food, went from a mere concept to a full-blown reality. The pace at which this project came to fruition was somewhat astonishing and struck me as a fantastic example of how our community comes together.

But I’ve learned over the years that the “news” doesn’t give you the whole picture of the efforts being made to turn things around, each day, in small ways all over the country.

Speak up, stand out, make an impact!

Fight The Fears That Come With Freedom

Fight the fears that come with freedom

Nineteen years ago, I unshackled myself from a job to pursue my life’s purpose.  I was frustrated in my role as an “employee” in a large tech company and tired of spending my precious days helping others build their dream instead of following my own.
